"I Feel Possessed" (Crowded House), played by yours truly

Be kind. The internet is forever.

Also, this is by no means for my vanity. It’s only because I friend I haven’t seen since 7th grade asked me to and I couldn’t say no.

A few questions about Another Earth

[SPOILER ALERT]

This science fantasy/drama about the sudden appearance of a parallel Earth raises intriguing philosophical questions.  Such as:

1) Is there a third Earth in which the conversation in pre-pro went something like this:

"Hey, what about William Mapother for the male lead?"

"Nope."

2) Or how about this conversation:

"I think we should never show Earth 2. That would be, like, really smart and clever."

"Nope."

3) Or:

"I know! She’ll give him the ticket to go to Earth 2!"

"Nope."

4) Or:

"Okay, so we’ve got Rhoda 1 seeing Rhoda 2 at the end. What if we just end it there and never see what happens next?"

"Nope."

5) Or:

"What if Rhoda has sex with William Ma—"

"Nope."
